    *Study. The more prepared you are, the less likely you are to lose your cool.

    *Take Kalms if you suffer anxiety. Kalms are a herbal anxiety remedy you can buy off the shelf without needing a prescription.

    *If you're allowed, take a bottle of water into the exam with you. Being hydrated will boost your concentration.

    *Chew gum right before the exam. Chewing gum can help reduce anxiety and improve your mood.

    *Make sure you get a good night's sleep the night before, and have a good nutritious breakfast on the day.

    *Avoid sugar and caffeine. Sugar will cause your energy levels and your concentration to plummet, whereas caffeine is known for worsening anxiety.

    *If you feel you're starting to get panicky, take slow deep breaths.

    Good luck!
